The cat who seeks you out and finds you. The cat in need of rescue who rescues you in the process. The cat of a lifetime. This is the true story of a cat named Frodo, who chooses as her unlikely companion a struggling graduate student-a young lad from the Midwest unprepared for the steep learning curve of being adopted by a cat, but earnestly big-hearted in his willingness to learn. Frodo surprises her beloved oaf with a series of precariously delightful misadventures from which she requires repeated rescuing, including an unexpected and zany kitten named Brandy, a fall into motor oil, an insane mouse, and leaps onto rooftops from which she can't get down. Frodo teaches her owner-a man immersed in the rigors of political science and the life of the mind-attentiveness to happy moments, as well as the compassionate gift of giving and receiving unconditional love. Throughout their years together, Frodo grows from a small pregnant stray with a limp waiting on the steps of a student rental in Norman, Oklahoma, into a little white princess ensconced within her very own castle on Glencove Avenue in Bangor, Maine-a tender and purring soul with a home, a man, and a family that grows up around her.
